review nokia 6225



Archived from groups: alt.cellular.sprintpcs (More info?)

Borrowed this layout from another review.
My last phone was a Sony Erickson the bluetooth was good but I sent it back
Nokia 6225 after 1.5 days.

1. Construction. Solid 9/10! Really light about 3.5 oz Feels good in the
hand. The text on key pad a little tough to read but OK

2. Reception. Excellent 10/10. Signal display is excellent, coming from a
Sanyo its as good or better not one dropped call.

3. Earpiece. 9/10. Very clear and load (slight distortion at very high
volume but not too bad at all)

4. Displays. 7/10 I only gave it a seven, as I would like a bigger display
but very readable in the California sun.

5. Speakerphone. 8/10. Its load but I would like it louder it's a bit too
soft in the car but its loud for its size and very clear. It's a half duplex
but you would never know it... its very good.

6. Ringers. Bit weird but they are real loud you wont miss a call. The
vibration is a little soft.

7. Menus. Still learning it some nice features but very comprehensive and

8. Keypad. 8/10.very easy to use and I like the power button.

9. Luv the built in Radio

Battery Life. To early to rate, but I used it for over an hour this
afternoon and it hasn't even made a dent at least on the display so it may
well exceed the 2.4 hours claimed (this does worry me)

no real cool looking phone appeal, as similar looking phones have been out
on other networks for sometime.

Additional comments
Best phone for its size.
Camera, speaker, infrared, stereo radio built in and the ability to sync to
outlook. Very easy to use and large type well designed. Excellent back up
support from Nokia direct (I did not get this from Sanyo) I have called
Nokia four times to date and did not have to wait more than 3 minutes for
them to answer.

Maybe the battery life but I could be wrong too early to tell. I may be
pleasantly surprised and because I have the phone early most of the 3rd
party products are not out yet even a holster (don't buy the 6200 holster it
doesn't fit). The software to sync is not yet available (this was the main
reason I got this phone and I will be very pi---d if its not out soon.
Hopes this helps

I beleive the nokia has a infrared port. Have you used the infrared to use
the phone as a modem on a laptop using Vision? If so, how was it?
